Business School Bound

I'm in! I'm IN!

I'm going to business school at the Simmons School of Management--on Saturday! I found out two hours ago and I'm bouncing off the walls with excitement. I've called everyone, Nate, my in-laws, my parents, my friends; I'm ridiculously excited.

Last week, in no uncertain terms was a disaster. Between studying for the GMAT, a barrage of headaches and having my wallet stolen, nothing agreeable happened. This week has been fantastic. With the GMAT over, I was able to sleep, I got a detective assigned to my stolen ID case, and today, my best friend Margaret and I decided to have lunch at Les Zygomates, my favorite restaurant since it was Restaurant Week and they had a fixed price lunch (I had the smoky corn chowder, duck a l'orange, and chocolate mousse... mmm!). I got home to a voicemail from the Director of Admissions at Simmons SOM.

Not only did I get in, but I was also awarded a Dean's Merit Scholarship for $20,000. I nearly fainted.

My first class is all day Saturday, Sunday is free, and then back to class on Monday. I can't wait. I can't WAIT.

Kate,
Your blog posting just surfaced on my Google home page. I was just sitting down to email you a personal congratulations as the Dean for being accepted into our program. So I will try this alternative format. I am delighted that you have chosen Simmons and I look forward to welcoming you tomorrow to Foundations.
Best regards,
Deborah Merrill-Sands
